‘Tis the season for hearing Jingle Bells and all your favorite Christmas carols. However, if you are hearing ringing in your ears after the music has stopped, you may have tinnitus.
Tinnitus is the fancy term for “ringing” in your ears. It is the perception of hearing sounds when there are no acoustic sounds in the room. It can drive people crazy- literally. There are many potential causes for tinnitus. One of the causes can be a misalignment in the upper cervical area of the neck interrupting proper nerve flow. We refer to this as a subluxation. A subluxation is a misalignment of the spine which interferes with the nerve function in between the vertebra. A subluxation is the result of spinal bones with improper motion affecting nerve communication between your brain and your body.
A Chiropractor is trained to detect misalignments or subluxations in the spine resulting in nerve pressure. We correct the subluxation by making specific adjustments to vertebrae.
